Bringing decentralized insurance to the Oasis Network
We’re thrilled to announce that Tidal will be integrating their cross-chain insurance protocol with the Oasis Network. Tidal Finance provides insurance coverage for a variety of assets in custom liquidity pools.
Through their platform, DeFi users can buy and sell over-leveraged covers, allowing them to hedge against failure of any DeFi protocol or asset. As the Oasis Network rapidly expands its DeFi ecosystem, tools like Tidal will be critical to ensuring that investors can take advantage of a new class of privacy-enabled financial vehicles while minimizing their risk exposure.
The plan is to leverage Tidal’s protocol to provide asset coverage for lending protocols and DEXs that will be integrated into the Oasis Network in the coming months.
“We are excited to work with Oasis to pioneer the next frontier of smart contract coverage” said Tidal co-founder Chad Liu.
This integration will go beyond just providing insurance capabilities. The Oasis Network’s unique ability to keep smart contracts and their data confidential, will also allow Tidal to explore expanding their claims process to include anonymous, democratized voting on claims processing with their community. In short, their community could vote on whether a particular claim should be approved in a privacy preserving manner.
We’re excited about the future of this partnership, and thrilled to see Tidal join the Oasis community. Their addition to the expanding list of DeFi partners building on the Oasis Network brings us one step closer to realizing our vision for a responsible data economy and privacy-enabled DeFi.
